Hello my friends! Have I got something sweet for you today! Apple Cider Caramel Sauce! You know I’m all about the apples in Fall. I love apple picking, apple cider, apple pie, apple muffins, apple pancakes, pretty much, apple anything. I love apple, the way other people love pumpkin spice. So, how could I say no to a simple, four ingredient, homemade apple cider caramel sauce? Answer: I couldn’t!
If you’ve never made your own caramel sauce before, let me assure you, it’s not nearly as scary as it sounds. I always thought it was intimidating, until I tried it myself. Now, I’m not sure I could have it any other way. Especially during Apple Season! I love the extra flavor the cider adds to the caramel. SO good!
Now, because this recipe has so few ingredients, you’ll want to use the highest quality butter you can get your hands on, and of course, fresh-pressed Apple Cider would be best!
Basically, you’re going to reduce the apple cider from 1 cup to 1/4 cup. That will concentrate all the flavors and give you a lovely apple base for the caramel. The rest of the ingredients go in the pot and then you’ll boil it for two minutes, over medium-high heat. That’s all! Let it cool and then you’ll have your very own Apple Cider Caramel Sauce! Now when I say “let it cool” that’s only to protect your tongue from getting burned if you taste a big spoonful of it too soon. Not that I speak from experience or anything…
Personally, I’m looking forward to having this sauce with vanilla bean ice cream or using it to make caramel apple granola, caramel apple monkey bread or even caramel apple popcorn! The possibilities are endless! What would you use this sauce for? I’d love to hear! Leave me a comment and let me know!
Enjoy my friends! Until next time, live life deliciously!
